BEAVER MOON CURATORIAL STATEMENT

Spring has come: Rebirth, Resurgence, Renaissance.

We are Womxn Artists of the new millennia, here to reclaim our Representation. We’re done with the status quo: the boring art world that elevates “safe,” white cisgender male art and no one else. We call bullshit on anti-female, rape and hate culture the current administration upholds.

BEAVER MOON is a visual and performative presentation of empowered and forward-thinking Womxn artists of the Coachella Valley. We use the specific spelling of Womxn to be inclusive of persons of color, intersectional identities, and all persons who identify as Womxn.

BEAVER MOON proudly features Artists:

Florian Ayala Fauna

Emily Joy

Kylie Knight

Jessica Macias

Jasa McKenzie

Monica Morones

Janet Zepeda X Creepy Little Thing

Michelle Castillo X Kristin Winters 

In present day, Womxn possess three bodies: The Spiritual (mind, heart, soul), The Sexual (physical body and instinct), and The Political (the identity and perception imposed upon us by the patriarchy). The Womxn artists of BEAVER MOON are at the crossroads of these themes. Their creative practices negotiate our multi-faceted identity through responding to how our culture perceives us and proclaiming the power Womxn possess to define ourselves.

In the spirit of the BEAVER MOON, it is time for Womxn artists to get busy creating work and forging their own Herstory. In light of the recent political violence against Womxn, and our livelihood at stake- Womxn voices and representation are needed more than ever. Through Visual Art and Performance, these Womxn Artists are expressing Spirituality, Sexuality, and the Political in a multi-media format that will give voice to concerns of Womxn in the Coachella Valley and beyond. .
